Courageous Sweet Marie

This is about my DH's Aunt Marie - Journaling Reads:


What a prickly package it must have been to be a woman in the 40’s and 50’s, a time when women were ruled by stereotypes and unwritten standards of how women were to behave and live. I marvel at Aunt Marie and the independent life & choices she made, often at the dismay of her family.

Marie never married, living instead with her sister Beatrice. She supported herself by working her entire career on an Air Force Base, the most masculine of environments.

These are not out of the ordinary by today’s standards but are quite out of the ordinary in the context of the 1940’s and 1950’s standards. What a brave, bold and independant woman she must have been!

Gorgeous LO and with her beauty I am surprised she never married in such an occupation! I've been thinking about you and was glad to see a LO here of yours and it is top notch, worthy of scraplifting and putting in my favs! ;)
